Thanks for writing in.
The antibiotic you have taken is definitely not for a pregnant lady & is not considered safe.
I don't know the indication of giving antibiotics but I think your doctor have given you this medicine as your Beta hCG levels were falling which is a sign of a failing pregnancy.
In addition, your recent ultrasound is also not very reassuring as there is no fetal pole. It may just be a blighted ovum ( empty sac ). If you are confused about your ongoing pregnancy you may go for a repeat Beta hCG before starting pregnancy medicine.
Hope I have addressed your concerns. Please feel free to contact back if you have any question.
Best regards.
